This really is Stockton!

As a former local podcaster myself, I had high hopes for this show… and Wes, Amy, and Anthony delivered! The Visit Stockton team have long been fanatic supporters of Stockton… not just to visitors but to residents, too, and their love for the city comes through in their well thought out episodes. Great guests and topics! I love going to a business or event and telling them that I heard about them on This is Stockton!

Great local podcast!

I was brought to this podcast after seeing it posted by The Golden Rose Barbershop. I really enjoyed listening to Steven discuss barbering. You can hear the professionalism in his voice and I love that he protected his more well known clients identities. Best barbershop in Northern California by far! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
